'Austerity & Sheila Dikshit go hand-in-hand'
Austerity has become a joke in India. There are so many Chief Ministers and ministers who talk of austerity on media channels but don't follow the whole idea of 'being austere'.

Those 4 lessons
I was left at the entrance of this institution while my life still revolved around cartoons and about bringing the latest and fanciest stationery to school, while my bag was bigger than my world, while I still cried about being picked up late from school, while everyone was like my own people without whom I felt lonely… and this, this very place has made me what I am today..

However, if we gauge and assimilate the gravity of life it is actually grey in color than black and white. It is more »
